Today marks a major milestone in our commitment to helping create the digital office our teams need to get work done, be more efficient, and collaborate effectively with colleagues. We are thrilled to announce 6 new features for your favorite meetings and chat solution:

  • New filters in video settings: Animations will make it appear as if you are focusing intently, even if you are checking your phone or surfing the web 
  • Awards show mode: Music will automatically fade in when the meeting goes past the scheduled end time — or attendees can activate it manually to drown out someone who is being dominating and annoying 
  • Picture-in-picture pet mode: A new setting allows for you to have your camera display one window for you, and one window for your pet (who only seems to wander around or bark when you have meetings with management) 
  • Social media security settings: A custom notification will display if you are sharing your screen and distractedly attempt to go over to the browser tab that has Facebook open 
  • New AI integrations: When you suddenly are asked a question in a meeting when you weren’t paying attention, you can summon Siri or Alexa to answer it for you — run through a special Sametime voice-matching filter set up to sound like you 
  • New audio settings: Less embarrassing, pre-set sounds, such as water running or a carn horn honking, will be auto played to drown out toilets flushing or family members yelling in the background.  

 Happy April Fool’s Day. Of course, this was a joke!

But you know what’s no joke? The upcoming global premiere of the newest version of HCL Sametime on June 7. And, the fact that Sametime beats the competition — hands-down. Let us show you how.

Announcing HCL Sametime Meetings’ support for Chrome WebRTC Unified Plan
HCL is pleased to announce the general availability of HCL Sametime 11.6 IF1, our latest interim fix release for Meetings. It is now available for download on FlexNet, HCL’s License & Delivery Portal.  Why is this IF release important to all Sametime v11.X customers using Meetings? Chrome M93 support and a lot of other critical fixes, including UX enhancements, UI improvements and multiple bug fixes to improve your overall Sametime Meetings and Chat experience. For more details, please check out the full fix list published here. Support for Chrome WebRTC Unified Plan:  Google has completely transitioned Chrome's WebRTC implementation from the Plan B SDP format to the Unified Plan, starting with Chrome M93 version. See Google’s announcement here.  What does this mean for Sametime Premium customers using Meetings? Prior to HCL Sametime 11.6 IF1, Chrome browser support (for Meetings) is based on the Plan B SDP format.   By upgrading Sametime to 11.6 IF1, Meetings now uses the WebRTC Unified Plan SDP format.   For information on how this impacts HCL Sametime 11.5 and 11.6 deployments, please read this article. Therefore, HCL strongly encourages all Sametime v11.X customers and business partners using Meetings to upgrade their Sametime Meeting servers to continue to enjoy a great Video Meetings and Chat experience on the latest Chrome browser. The details of how to upgrade your HCL Sametime environments to our latest release can be found here.
